On December 12, 2022, 4 officers of Brookfield East's Rotary Interact Club visited the Elmbrook Rotary Club (ERC).

Interact clubs bring together young people ages 12-18 to develop leadership skills while discovering the power of "Service Above Self.” The Brookfield East club organizes at least two projects every year, one that helps their school or community and one that promotes international understanding. Rotary clubs sponsor, mentor, and guide Interactors as they carry out projects and develop leadership skills. The ERC's mentor is Rotarian Jack Hill.

Each Officer introduced themselves and explained what activities they were involved in:

· Mary, a sophomore, has been with the club for one year. She was involved in a program that provided cards for retirement home residents.

· Megan, a senior, has been with the club for three years. She helped prep signs for the fine arts craft fair benefit

· Mia, a senior, has been with the club three years. She is looking forward to the "blanket drive" for the woman’s shelter.

· Alex, a senior, has been with the club for four years. He has enjoyed volunteering at the Brookfield Germanfest event.

Interact Club aims to connect with leaders in our community and around the world to:

· Take action to make a difference in your school and community

· Discover new cultures and promote international understanding

· Become a leader in your school and community

· Have fun and make new friends form around the world

· There are 342,953 Interactors in 14,911 clubs worldwide in 145 countries

Thank you, Mary, Megan, Mia, Alex and Interact members for your service to the community and each other.
